Cahoon Neighborhood Haunt
It began in 1992. It was a normal Halloween, kids coming up to the door begging for candy. Suddenly a boy wearing a sheet felt it pulled off as if a giant vacum cleaner had grabbed it. The sheet traveled about 6 feet and then disappeared in mid air. Most felt it was some trick played on the young boy by high schoolers looking to scare someone, including myself until the next morning. Waking up I went out to get the paper and discovered a thin length wood, shaped like a musical conductors baton and a part of a flyer from an institution called PIGMOLE's Boarding School for Magical Beings. The strange stick and paper fragment were interesting enough to keep as souvenirs from an interesting Halloween. Little did I know that the next year was to prove even more interesting.
The next year as the Trick or Treaters approached my home, I heard gasps of, "WOW", "Cool", "How'd ya do that mister", from the kids as they came up to the door. During a lull I went out to investigate and found a large swirling circle formed over my driveway. Looking into this circle it was possible to see individuals dressed as magicians and witches, along with incredable fantasy creatures moving around as if being seen on television. As I moved closer to get a better look, one of the creatures jumped through the circle, knocked me over and vanished into the darkness. It was then I realized that this circle was not some Halloween prank but a portal into a mystical world. As that concept sunk into my brain the portal disappeared with a loud pop.
I kept watch for it over the next year and finally on Halloween night it appeared once again for 3 hours before vanishing for another year. The next Halloween I was ready for it and experimented by tossing objects that were tied to strings so they could be retrieved. Trans-dimensional fishing some might call it, but I was determined to gain knowledge of this new world so that I could travel there myself. Some objects came back safely and others did not, but the knowledge gained allowed me to attempt an expedition on October 31st 1996.
My journey landed me in an educational facility for beings with magical powers. The school taught them how to use their powers safely and to protect themselves in case of trouble. Wisely I kept hidden in the shadows observing the goings on of the school. At one point I stumbled onto another group from my dimension being confronted by the schools residents. What occurred still gives me the chills. Getting caught in this dimension by its residents is NOT a good thing.
Today I'm making some money from travels. As soon as the portal
opens every Halloween there are always brave fools ready to explore PIGMOLE'S
just like I did. I let them, warn them of the dangers if they are
caught, and then get my cash up front. Many never return.
